What do you base this statement on?

IMO being able to modify and rebuild the build system on Debian is
just as essential to our users as being able to modify and rebuild the
programs and documentation etc. Using dh-autoreconf helps ensure that
we learn about failures early, especially since some Debian QA folks
do periodic archive-wide rebuilds and report FTBFS bugs.
